    Actual Us President (Donald Trump) Pen

    Dear All, I was looking at the pen used by Donald Trump for signing the executive orders (I have attached a picture). I know it is a Cross Townsend black but I noticed it is not a pen, it is most a black marker. Looking on the Cross official site I didn't find any Townsend Cross Marker model, only Roller (that was the one of the former Barack Obama), ballpoint and fountain pen. Is it pheraps a special model not available on the market?
  4. Please help with identifying (and maybe dating, first of all) my two Cross Townsend Lapis Lazuli, which look a bit different. The differences are most in disign of nibs and feeds, but also in serial numbers (on section thread). Also, prints on caps are different, "Cross - USA" and "Cross Made in USA" respectively. I`ve been told, that nibs of Townsends were made by Pelikan, but I cant idenify wich one (or both maybe)? But nibs are quite different, the F nib is much more rigid than M (with "curvy" tins). Thanks https://images.vfl.ru/ii/1554894246/9fc53d24/26136401_m.jpg https://images.vfl.ru/i
  5. I just bought a 18K Gold-filled Cross Townsend with a 18K BB nib from eBay, and I just wanted to ask the experts here if my pen is authentic and made in the USA. It has the script "Cross" logo on the clip, and an 18K hallmark for the rolled gold finish, but there is no marking of the country of origin on the pen itself. The pen itself writes well from the get-go, with some nib squeaking which should probably go away with use. At first I tried using a green Cross converter, but it leaked all over the place. The pen didn't leak when I switched to cartridges. Here are some pictures for your per

    Year Of The Rooster - Question

    Hi All. I wonder if anyone can help me with what a quick question? I phoned Cross but the guy I spoke to didn't know the answer. I bought my wife the Cross, Year of the Rooster pen for her 40th birthday. She loves it but feels that it writes a bit broad for her taste. I would like to replace the nib and I wondered what nib is compatible. I have checked through the forum and from doing so I believe that the pen is essentially a Townsend. Is that correct? If so then I assume any Townsend nib would fit? I have checked prices and if that is the case then it looks like for what would be

    Strange Embossed Logo On Cross Townsend?

    Greetings all. Looking for some insight into a recent acquisition. I recently got (what I think is) a good deal on a fleabay Townsend rollerball (which I quickly converted to FP on arrival). My first Townsend model, I really like the look and feel! From what I know this is a Tuxedo silver/black model. The silver was quite tarnished but polished back well with some paste and a cloth. The rollerball section appeared to be belmish free, and the replacement FP section screwed in no problem. However, the cap is intriguing. Notice the "CROSS" logo on the clip - it's a raised applique rath

    Hello, From Dorset Uk

    So, having just bought a Cross Townsend fountain pen, in black with 23k gold medium nib and trim I thought I'd value being able to discuss matters handwriting with like spirits. The Cross Townsend is to replace my Parker Duofold International which I've been using since 1988. The Duofold is still giving excellent service even after 30 years, but hey! I suddenly fancied a change (fickle or what?). I'm currently using Clairefontaine Velin Blanc 90g paper, a delight but expensive. Being somewhat careful in matters financial (skinflint?) I'm using up the two Cross cartridges that came with the pe
  9. The most basic, and probably most asked introductory question you all get is, "What is involved with making your own barrels and caps." I know there are a myriad topics that are included like material desired, time needed, cost, machining and tools, technical ability, etc. The reason I'm asking is because I've recently become the recipient of four vintage (1970's) New Old Stock Cross Townsend Nibs. I can't buy the barrels and caps and don't really want to sell the nibs, but they are otherwise useless. A Moderator suggested I take a look at this forum and I had no idea folks created their own
  10. Hi, I have a Cross Townsend Lazuli Blue Lapis and gold fountain pen that I got as part of my divorce settlement. We purchased the pen new in London in 1998. It was used a couple of times by my ex, a part time calligrapher, but still looks to be in perfect condition. I want to sell this pen, but want to get an idea of how much its worth before putting it on ebay... and also if ebay is the best place to sell a pen like this. I've seen some prices online, but they range from $299 to $999, mostly from posts 5 years ago or more, so uncertain of its worth. thanks Lee

    Cross Townsend - Help/opinions

    I'm planning on purchasing a Cross Townsend fountain pen, but I can't seem to make up my mind on the finish. I'm considering the following: Quartz Blue LacquerGarnetRuby Lacquer​Opinions are more than welcome. Any information regarding your experience with a Townsend is appreciated. I would love to see a writing sample for the fine and medium nib (two-tone 18-karat/rhodium-plated). Thanks in advance.
  14. Cross Townsend (18K rolled Gold Finish) Introduction This pen was purchased from a purveyor of fine pens based in Rhode Island (RI), USA. I went to college in Providence, RI, but did not realise at the time that the famous A.T. Cross company was founded in Providence (1846), and had its global headquarters just 10 miles away in Lincoln, RI. After solely collecting Japanese pens for years, I decided to explore the offerings from the pen makers in other countries. Hence, last year I started to put together a collection of flagship pens that was representative of the major brands in the mark
  15. Hi, This is my first cross Townsend (bought second/used). I just notice that the feed got ink everywhere, is this normal for Cross Townsend? also there is a trace of ink on the rim. I use cartridge for this one. Photo attached. Thank you in adavance for answer(s).
  16. Yet again, I am trying to purchase a Montblanc Oscar Wilde ballpoint pen. This time, I trying to get this pen via a pen swap from a seller from whom I have purchased several pens in the past. However, since I have only done one pen swap in the past, I figured that I would ask the advice of those here who have done pen swaps since this swap seems a little one-sided (not in my favor) to me. I have like-new but without boxes Cross Townsend Lapis Lazuli ballpoint pen, pencil and rollerball pen and Cross Townsend Jade ballpoint pen and rollerball pen. I have kept each set in its own leather p
  17. I thought that those of you who are fans of Cross Townsend Rollerballs might enjoy seeing the picture of Jacob Lew, the US Secretary of the Treasury, signing his new signature using a Cross Townsend Rollerball in the NY Daily News article about the unveiling of his new signature (below). http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/treasury-secretary-signature-facelift-article-1.1376374 Enjoy! : )
